Hedo Turkoglu (back) will not play in Game 3 on Friday and updating an earlier report he is targeting a return in Game 5.
Turkoglu's presence is actually somewhat important for a Clippers unit forced to play Jared Dudley and Glen Davis. He suffered a hairline fracture in his back and at his age and mileage he'll be very questionable to suit up. May 9 - 9:04 PM

Date:

Hedo Turkoglu (bruised lower back) will miss at least Games 1 and 2 of the Clippers' second-round matchup vs. Portland.

Turkoglu's return date is up in the air and may lead to more playing time for Danny Granger and Jared Dudley, though they combined to play just three minutes in the Clippers' Game 7 victory on Saturday.
May 5 - 1:40 PM

Hedo Turkoglu's bruised lower back will sideline him during Game 6 on Thursday.

Turkoglu has given the Clippers a bit of perimeter firepower in under 10 minutes per game during the postseason, and his absence should mean a few extra minutes for Jared Dudley and Matt Barnes. He was expected to have an MRI but the results have not yet been disclosed, so for now we're considering him day-to-day.
May 1 - 2:36 PM

Hedo Turkoglu is expected to have an MRI after bruising his lower back during Tuesday's win vs. the Warriors.

Turkoglu has averaged eight minutes per game in the playoffs, making 4-of-10 shots from downtown in a spot-minute role off the bench. His MRI will be performed on Wednesday and the results should be announced prior to Thursday's Game 6 in Oakland.
Apr 30 - 10:01 AM

Hedo Turkoglu suffered a lower back contusion during the second half of Tuesday's game and he is doubtful to return.

He was in some pain and needed to be helped to the locker room. The Clippers have gotten a lot more out of Turkoglu than most expected, but he may miss time in the future. He'll likely be re-evaluated on Wednesday.
Apr 30 - 12:36 AM

Hedo Turkoglu hit four 3-point shots for 12 points, four rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Pardon us if we don't race to the wire to pick him up, as one look at his game log will tell you. If he can revive his career over a longer stretch we'll let you know. After all, Jared Dudley might be as out of shape as O.J. Mayo these days.
Feb 24 - 11:09 PM

Hedo Turkoglu (bruised knee) was scoreless with seven rebounds, three assists and one block in 12 minutes vs. the Sixers on Sunday.

Turkoglu was a true game-time decision and his knee isn't yet 100 percent recovered. That didn't matter on Sunday, as he was still able to post a +/- rating of +15 without even attempting a shot in the Clippers' romp over the Sixers. We're taking Turkoglu off the injury report, as he should be ready to go on Wednesday.
Feb 10 - 1:00 AM

Hedo Turkoglu (bruised knee) is listed as day-to-day in advance of Sunday's game vs. the 76ers.

Turkoglu hurt himself in the first half of Wednesday's game and the injury kept him out of both Friday's game and Saturday's practice. Matt Barnes and Jared Dudley will each get a handful of extra minutes if Hedo isn't ready to suit up.

Feb 8 - 4:10 PM

Hedo Turkoglu will not play on Friday due to a bruised right knee.

It was only a matter of time before Hedo missed time after so much time away from the NBA. Turkoglu has no fantasy value and fantasy owners can expect Matt Barnes and Jared Dudley should absorb some minutes.
Feb 7 - 10:58 PM

Hedo Turkoglu played seven minutes in his season debut on Friday night, scoring two points with one board.

He looked like a guy that hasn't played basketball in quite some time. Turkoglu was slow getting up and down the court and it's hard to imagine the Clippers asking him to do much dribbling. He can be left on the wire in almost all leagues.
Jan 18 - 12:31 AM

Hedo Turkoglu will be active for Friday's game against the Knicks.

He shot just 26.4 percent from the field in his 11 games last season, so the bar is set pretty low for the 34-year-old forward. There's very little incentive to picking him up in fantasy leagues.
Jan 17 - 6:22 PM

Clippers sign F Hedo Turkoglu.

Turkoglu is aboard the Clippers plane that is headed to New York, where they will begin a seven-game road trip on Friday. His contract is believed to be for the entire season, but he probably won't have much fantasy value in anything but the deepest of leagues.

Hedo Turkoglu is in L.A. and will sign with the Clippers once he passes a physical, according to Ismail Senol of Turkey's NTV SPOR.

Doc Rivers already tipped his hand about signing Turkoglu, and the contract is believed to be guaranteed for the season rather than a 10-day deal. Owners in deep leagues may want to keep an eye on his role off the Clippers' bench, but he should remain unowned in the vast majority of leagues.
Jan 15 - 10:07 AM

Doc Rivers suggested that the Clippers may soon sign free agent Hedo Turkoglu.

Rivers was impressed by Turkoglu during a workout last week and said the Clippers are looking at him "hard." The veteran forward's ability to handle the ball and pass may be the primary cause of L.A.'s interest, as they look for creative ways to patch over Chris Paul's absence.
Jan 14 - 2:19 PM

Doc Rivers said that free agent Hedo Turkoglu "looked good" during a workout for the Clippers on Thursday, but the team doesn't plan to sign him "anytime soon."

"He made shots from everywhere," Rivers said. "It was a good workout." The Clippers have a full 15-man roster and Rivers said that they may pursue Andrew Bynum, so they're in no rush to roll the dice on 34-year-old Turkoglu.
